Liberty’s grounds maintenance team in Salford has supported a local community project in Little Hulton.
CommUNITY Little Hulton, a youth club and charity, recently received planning permission to refurbish and extend Peel Park Pavilion. The exciting plans include extending the pavilion in Peel Park and car park and building raised planters, wildflower meadow, bug boxes, and a play area
The charity called on the grounds team and waste partners Kenny Waste to clear a disused area of the park, which was overgrown with bushes and shrubs, as well as general waste left on site.
Five members of the grounds maintenance team – John Shortt, Mark Woodfine , Jason Gardener, Lewis Barker and Larry Neill – volunteered 8 hours each and four members of the arborist team – Steven Roberts-McDonagh, Reece Degney and Fergus Marks – volunteered 4 hours each to clear the area. This totalled 52 hours of time at an estimated cost of £1,500.
With the area clear, it is ready for construction contractors to complete the works and develop a permanent community hub within Peel Park Little Hulton and to continue to develop activities and services to enhance the community’s wellbeing.
Regional Director, Gavin Saunders, said: “At Liberty, we pride ourselves on supporting the community where we work. By supporting organisations like CommUNITY Little Hulton we can make a real difference to people’s lives. We look forward to working with them in the near future.”
